    This is very disturbing. The headlines should be an "Attempted Child Luring"! Not a prowler. This is a serious incident and the community should be handled properly.

  • Robin Amanda Kelley

    I agree w/Robin. Headline is very misleading. What happened to real journalism? Maybe it's time for RRN to re-assess their audience & mission. Is RRN reporting news that fits tourists or residents? If tourism is their ultimate goal (as seems obvious) - drop the newspaper biz & create a glossy periodical or mag. Intellectual & reporting Integrity is important.

    This incident obviously involved a child predator or an attempt at a perverted act. Even what is reported that was said by the "prowler" was undoubtedly misunderstood by the children. A lot more questions should be asked and all of us need to be aware of someone approaching children in this way.
